The dvd has 2 leg/glute workouts, and 2 ab workouts (called Mega and Master routines). Though I'm in reasonably good shape, I found all the workouts challenging - especially the leg routines.
The leg workouts are standing leg routines (no floor work), last about 20 minutes and involve creative squats, plies, leg lifts and lunges, often alternating fast with slow moves. The only equipment needed is a chair, and light & medium weights. The ab workouts last about 5 minutes and involve creative crunches and leg lifts (no planks). The set design is nice and bright and Dr. Olson's cuing is great.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I found the Mega leg routine to be oh-so-boring, with endless squats & lunges set to repetitive music. I had to stop after about 12 minutes as I'd had enough (I still got an awesome workout however)
I haven't used the dvd enough yet to see results, but from the way I feel after each workout, I'm confident I will!
UPDATE: I purchased a heart rate monitor and have a new appreciation for this workout. Not only are you burning serious calories but building muscle. It's really a dynamic workout that pushes you in both strength and cardio. I burned 411 calories in the hour including all workouts (mega and master legs and abs).
